Rohr Was Ready To Drop 7 Players From World Cup Squad – NFF
Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, was ready to name his final squad for the 2018 World Cup on Tuesday.
However, the German coach eventually released a list of 30 players in his provisional squad, from which he will drop seven.
The member of the NFF Technical Committee says Rohr rejected the NFF’s advice to name 35 players, so that some foreign-based players will feature in next Tuesday’s friendly against Atletico Madrid.
It is believed that Rohr has at least 20 of the 23 players he will be taking to the World Cup in his mind.
